Description

I'm sitting in the time-out chair because my mother put me there. She said, "You try my patience, child I do not like it when you're wild."
Wild?
Who me?
That is so absurd.
How could she even use that word?
If I were a lion.
I'd growl and roar
And knock the dishes on the floor...
AND if I were a bear...
If I Were a Lion is a book for every child who's ever been sent to the time-out chair -- unjustly...or otherwise.


Praise For If I Were a Lion

"Sarah Weeks's rambunctious angel in If I Were a Lion will have readers roaring with laughter. Parents should love reading it too, as it's bound to evoke memories of their own childhood antics. Heather Solomon's wonderfully textured creatures make you want to touch each one of them." -- Betsy Lewin, Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator of Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type
